I have owned 5 Dodge Rams, and this is the best one yet. The ride, handling, reliability and comfort are unsurpassed. This is the only half-ton truck to offer ESP. What a life saver! ESP has saved me many times this winter driving down narrow country roads. The seats are a perfect fit. The rack and pinion steering makes the truck fun and nimble. I have had no trouble at all.
Favorite features: Styling, reliability, seat comfort, steering, ESP. The local dealer in Fredonia is phenomenal. They are very accommodating and they provide free rental cars for any service
Suggested improvements: I would like to see heated cloth seats like other mopar products, memory seats like GM vehicles and a more upscale interior like that of GM, however it should still look tough inside UNLIKE GM. That means great materials, comfort, and features with a tough look as well

A loyal Ram 1500 4x4 buyer: 1990, 1999, 2005 & most recently an '07. I had an '05 Ram 1500 quad 4x4 w/Hemi and was disappointed...Poor fuel mileage and a terrible ride. Fitment was also poor. Because I rarely used the 4WD I opted for the 2WD this time. I am very happy with my choice. I got a very good deal at the Dealership (a lost leader deal). With the 4.7 eng I get 20 MPG on the hi-way and it is still new. Off the line it keeps pace with the Hemi, but the Hemi is superior at higher speeds for raw get up and go. Never the less the 4.7 seems to be more than adequate. This revamped model seems to have ironed out the product line's prior deficiencies. It seems to be a very good value.
Favorite features: Opt for an SLT with the power seat, anti-slip rear-end, sliding r/window, auto trans, tow package and yes the floor mats are optional too. If I could only choose one option it would be the power seat. I can't quite get comfortible in the standard seating arrangement.
Suggested improvements: The jury is still out on the rear "bubble" tailmaps and the extra large headlamps. Poor handling at high speeds on rough roads.

Ths is by far the best vehicle I have ever owned. I would have bought the truck regardless. However the incentives were the best around.
Favorite features: Everything
Suggested improvements: None
